First let me say my photos don't do justice to this cameo necklace; it's far nicer in person. The faceted jet black beads glisten and the overall look breathtaking.
You are looking at a rare and outstanding signed "Original by Robert" cameo necklace, which features a cameo, which is partially hand painted; it features a beautiful woman. The cameo appears to be original to the double strand jet black faceted beads, as there isn't a closure on either end of the cameo; there is a gold metal bar that attaches the cameo to the necklace portion (see pic). There are two small gold beads between each jet black bead. There is glass covering the cameo, with small gold prongs holding it in place.
The design of the necklace is unusual and exquisite. Even the necklace closure on the back is ornate, featuring jet black faceted beads along with rhinestones, which are all prong set. The clasp opens and closes perfectly.
The back of the cameo is signed Original by Robert; this is hidden by the jet beads, which dangle over this area.
The overall condition is excellent to superb, with minor discoloration to the gold metal rope design surrounding the cameo, to the back of the cameo (which is hidden by the beads), along with some discoloration to the back of the clasp.
The cameo is approx. 1 5/8" top to bottom & 1 ¼" across. The necklace is approx. 11" long when held straight. The drop from the clasp to where the cameo is attached is approx. 8", with a total circumference around the neck of 16". The beaded dangle portion at the bottom is approx. 2 ½" long.
You will absolutely love this exquisite vintage cameo necklace; it is breathtaking in person.
